The first signs of spring

Spring Bulbs at Kentwell Hall.jpg

The weather may be a little chilly, but spring is cautiously creeping over the Kentwell Manor. The Nut Walk is full of bright yellow catkins blowing in the wind and the bright scarlet female flowers add a hidden dash of colour.

Spring is always an exciting time at Kentwell. The Walled Garden has been put to bed and the rows of neatly pruned espaliered apple trees stand in tidy rows, waiting to burst into life. Walking across the manor, the massed spring bulbs are beginning to appear through the grass, and routes change as the winding spring walkways reappear.

Weather and bulb-permitting, the gardens re-open in mid-February for you to explore the magnificent displays of snowdrops and daffodils and admire the changing spring gardens as the season progresses. Lambing begins in mid-March, and you will be able to watch the newly born lambs finding their feet in the lambing pens and racing around the front lawn.

Meanwhile, the Kentwell Team are hard at work creating an even bigger programme of events for 2015. With even more chances to visit our historical re-creations, and more family events and activities, we are looking forward to an exciting 2015 at Kentwell Hall.
